stuff eugene liked this week

Hope everyone had a good week.  Busy week with many end of school year parental responsibilities and events.  Here’s some Stuff Eugene Liked This Week:

Canada Offers An Apology for Native Students’ Abuse [ny times] – the absolute most important read if you haven’t had a chance to read it already.  Here are some of the excerpts from Prime Minister Harper’s statement of apology.

What’s Fueling Global Warning Hysteria This Week [@ Broken Telegraph] – one of my growing favorite Quest bloggers.  And particularly in the Northwest, it takes some guts to question the whole global warming [un]debate.

What I Did with My Stimulus Check [@ God’s Politics] – a provocative read.  Here’s just the first paragraph:

On May 9, 2008, I received an “economic stimulus payment” from you for the amount of $600.00. I’m concerned that I received this check in error. As I understand it, you are $9 trillion in debt. You have outstanding bills with:

a) 47 million people in the United States without health insurance
b) 27 million Iraqis
c) 35.5 million Americans living without adequate food
d) 744,000 people in the U.S. without a place to live
e) 2.9 million disabled U.S. veterans
f) at least one polar bear

According to Psalm 37:21, “The wicked borrow, and don’t pay back, but the righteous give generously.” The money you gave to me was borrowed against your debt. As I see it, this is neither wise nor just.

@ THE MOVIES:  Saw the new Indiana Jones film and I can’t tell you how disappointed I was.  Geez.  I think I was more disppointed with this one than the Star Wars Prequels.  Anyone else?

    Re: Canada – it’s nice when a gov’t actually takes responsibility for its wrong-doings.

    wow. props to canada. that’s pretty amazing.

    i was pretty disappointed by indiana jones as well. way too much george lucas in the second half of the movie. it started off pretty entertaining and then the cgi kicked in and everything went blegh.

    hey PE as your token canuck parishioner, i feel compelled to make a comment about your blog today. politics are politics, and i feel that there will always be people who undermine and twist the intentions of a politician’s words. i’m going to lean way over on the side of optimism and say that i was even more proud than i usual am to be canadian. for PM harper to take the burden of over 100 years of unimaginable mistreatment of the First Nations people truly is the realization of the seemingly impossible. what kind of crazy national leader would speak the words that he spoke?! my prayer is in accord with the words of national cheif phil fontaine: that this would be the beginning of both healing for, and reconciliation between the First Nations community and our country. merci beaucoup de partager cette histoire sur votre blog, PE!

    Sorry, PE, can’t agree with you on that one………………………….I do usually agree, but the latest Indiana Jones brought back a lot of memories for this old man and was just fine. I only see about one movie a year in the theaters and got to see this one with my sons – in town for the weekend, the weekend it opened. I guess you could call that a nexus????????????????? How old were you when the first one came out? That could have some bearing. I called the guy I saw the first one with.

    A nostalgic memory – We went to see another movie, back then – 1979, or so – I got to the complex a little early and “snuck in” to see the beginning. (Jesus has forgiven me for that, too) and when I came out, my friend asked “Well, what do you think? Should we bother to see it?” I said (duh) yes. I asked him (he has an incredible memory) last week what movie was it we saw then, instead? Excalibur. Do you remember it? I sure don’t.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

The secret to being grateful is no secret. You choose to be grateful. Then you do it again and again. Every day. If you forget, start again. Back to fishing...I mean, umm...back to writing a book. There's no such thing as a self-made person. Someone believed, encouraged, and invested in you. Be grateful and be that someone for others.

Taking a break from the sabbatical...to partner in ministry in Denver at Cherry Hills Church and at the CRU staff conference. It was such a gift to be able to encourage a handful of folks one-to-one, a small group of Asian-American leaders from EPIC, and the larger group of 5000 staff during one of the sessions.

I've been personally blessed, challenged, encouraged, exhorted, and convicted by so many who have poured into my life - friends, acquaintances, and even strangers - and I hope to do that for others as I seek to be faithful to Christ.

Thank you, Lord.
#cru17 Nothing grows by itself. If something matters to us, may we be intentional about growing it.

Invest. Pray. Plant. Water. Nurture. Repeat. God sees and knows us. In fact, God knows everything about us.

Not just the good we try so hard to project but even the mess we often seek to hide.

Let this soak in: Not only are we fully known but in Christ, we are fully pursued and loved.

This is grace.
Amazing grace. Hairstyles change. Sideburn fads come and go but may our commitment to love, honor, respect, and be on mission together for Christ never waver.

Thank you, Minhee. I love you so much even if you made fun of my hairstyle and sideburns.
